I apologize profusely: this is not a chapter update.
This story is going on hiatus in light of being more aggressive in banning stories with mature content. I had planned for this story to contain mature material, but would prefer not to have the entire thing torn down because of it.
Instead, I plan to wait until I have a verified account with Archive of our Own (AO3), to continue. Unfortunately, the wait list is quite long and they estimate February before I can make a contribution.
I want to thank everyone who has subscribed to this story and left comments, it means a lot to me and I hope you'll all continue to read this when I get it posted on AO3!
